On release day (Feb. 21), the seven members of BTS sat down with Billboard while in New York City to discuss the album’s release and meaning, with RM alluding to the way the new LP is a love song of sorts to the band's career.
“Love is not always about the good things,” he reflects. “When we love something or somebody, it’s like admitting, recognizing all the history that someone or something’s got. It could be shades and shadows, maybe some dark sides. So yeah, it’s basically a love song for our career.”
